Hayo’u are the UK’s original, multi-award winning gua sha and wellness tool specialist.

Master your health with one-minute rituals and luxurious products, distilled from Chinese medicine.
Hayo’u Method was created by Katie Brindle. After years of studying the literature, practising in clinics and dealing with her own physical and emotional traumas, she knows how beneficial this wisdom is. It can help you too – and it only takes a few minutes a day.

Hayo’u was founded by acclaimed Chinese medicine practitioner and best-selling author Katie Brindle. Katie always dreamt of becoming an opera singer, but a serious car crash spun her life in a different direction. Katie lost her singing voice – but discovered the immense self-healing power of Chinese medicine.

Now with over 20 years working in Chinese medicine, Katie has seen first-hand how this ancient wisdom can help many of our most pervasive modern ailments – from poor skin and bad digestion, to adrenal fatigue, depression and anxiety. Her aim is to show you that we all hold within us the power to treat ourselves better. These one-minute rituals are intended as a simple place to start. Thousands of years of Chinese wisdom, distilled into potent self-treatment remedies.

“It is my passion to make self-care simple, affordable and available to everyone. Thousands of years of Chinese wisdom distilled into potent self-treatment techniques to counter-balance the negative impact of modern living and achieve clear results.” Katie Brindle

The market is currently flooded with gua sha tools claiming to be the real deal, but what is it that makes our crystal tools so special? For a start, many of the gua sha tools out there are not in fact real crystal but often glass or composite.

Pure crystals carry energy into the body and it’s imperative to use the highest quality. Glass, plastic or chemically-treated crystals will provide nothing more than an inferior skin massage which couldn’t be further removed from gua sha. Our crystals receive no treatment other than shaping by hand and polishing. This is also why each and every one of our crystal gua sha tools are different and completely unique.

When heated, both jade and quartz are excellent conductors of FIR (Far Infrared Rays). Far Infrared Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bone. Infrared radiation has been proven to increase collagen and elastin production with continued use.

All our crystals are GIA certified by the British Association of Gemmologists, and of the highest quality possible, affording our complete assurance in both the benefits and power of our gua sha tools.

When you learn how to harness the power of these remarkable crystals, they offer a truly integrated approach to wellness, health and beauty. These gua sha tools and techniques have been used for thousands of years. They’re incredibly powerful, 100% natural and last a lifetime.

Every Hayo’u tool has been recognised by the most coveted awards in the industry including the Beauty BibleBeauty ShortlistBazaar Best of the Best Beauty Awards and Vogue Beauty Awards.
